Meet the little Fixed Icon: . This is stuff, EA actually fixed. You will need to redownload any Store items.

Please post if you know about a faulty item (but please wait a little while until I'm done updating).

If you know about any threads that deal with solutions, let me also know.

If you want more items to be fixed, sign the petition: Store Items Should Get Updated *Petition*

Twallan made a mod that can help with the categorization issues. The Dresser lets you maintain an invalid parts list and replaces the outfits for Sims that are wearing those. Still looking into the details and you will need some basic tuning knowledge. Details to follow. erbkaiser has made a invalid_parts tuning file that corrects most of the miscategorizations with the Store items. You can find it here: erbkaiser's InvalidParts Tuning. File as-is. No support given.

Wall Coverings/Wall sets
The left and right edges of the "Simple Paneling with Crown and Baseboard Moulding" are slightly different in brightness, so that when put together on the wall you see the alternating brightness all around the room. This is the set used in the store picture for the "Glitter and Glam" bedroom set.

General Problems
- The HELS aquarium and the fish bowl don't show all of the LN fish

World Adventures
Hidden tomb door (WA) shows holes in the walls--> reported by gobot1236

Questionable items
- Those male shoes from FL look kind of girly. What do you think ? Should they be categorized for sleepwear only cause they are actually slippers or should they be female only ? (I don't have FL, so I can't form an opinion myself).

OK. Bed time. Done for now. Will update German names tomorrow. The links should work regardless.

If you have anything more, please let me know.

Not unless they are causing you the issues stated.

Examples:

If you have townies runnign around in the Scuba shoes...then yes remove them

If the Cellar Arch crashed your game when you try to place it...then yes remove it

ETC.

I would wait on Crin for a better answer, but I think i might be on the right track

As Alex said, that really depends if it bothers you. With the recolorable thing for example - I don't mind too much, also it doesn't bother me that the wall items pre-LN are not up-down-shiftable. Someone else might find that a major pain.

So I say: If it's an issue for you, uninstall, if not, leave them BUT I would certainly not spend any SP on those items. If they come with a set you really want, I would be ok but don't buy them as single items.
